In this blog, I am introducing to you the best of Hamilton County wedding venues. Located just north of Indianapolis, Hamilton County is an affluent suburb filled incredible wedding venues. It can be difficult to choose the perfect setting for your wedding with so many options – or not knowing about the hidden gems in your own community. These Hamilton County wedding venues are, in my opinion, some of Central Indiana’s best. Which landscape do you love? What type of ambience are you looking for? Read on to see our favorites! Who knows, one might grab your heart and be available for your wedding day. They book out fast so get planning!

Artisan Acres:
An Whimsical Forest Wedding Venue

If you have your heart set on a unique and whimsical wedding venue in the forest, then book a tour at Artisan Acres in Noblesville, Indiana. Tucked away in a quaint woodland setting on twelve secluded historic acres, Artisan Acres Estate has everything you need to create your storybook wedding. From the fragrant lavender field to the lush and colorful dahlia gardens, to the extraordinary Old European style barn, this venue is truly a gem!

White Willow Farms:
A Modern Countryside Barn

What’s so great about White Willow Farms is that it gives you both a quintessential Midwestern vibe (hello, farm homestead) with a touch of rural charm thrown in for good measure. The restored 1940’s barn is complete with original hand hewn beams, 45ft ceilings, chandeliers, concrete floors and a built in modern bar. The 14 acre property also features a countryside chapel, antique church style pews, picturesque fields and onsite horses. This might be quite possibly our favorite barn venue!
